9780745336152: How the West Came to Rule: The Geopolitical Origins of Capitalism

Mainstream historical accounts of the development of capitalism describe a process which is fundamentally European - a system that was born in the mills and factories of England or under the guillotines of the French Revolution. In this groundbreaking book, a very different story is told. How the West Came to Rule offers a unique interdisciplinary and international historical account of the origins of capitalism. It argues that contrary to the dominant wisdom, capitalism's origins should not be understood as a development confined to the geographically and culturally sealed borders of Europe, but the outcome of a wider array of global processes in which non-European societies played a decisive role. Through an outline of the uneven histories of Mongolian expansion, New World discoveries, Ottoman-Habsburg rivalry, the development of the Asian colonies and bourgeois revolutions, Alexander Anievas and Kerem Nisancioglu provide an account of how these diverse events and processes came together to produce capitalism.

Recensione:

Historical Sociology has long been criticised for its failure to rigorously incorporate international and world-historical factors into its method of analysis. Meanwhile, Marxism has often been charged with an understanding of capitalism that unwittingly plays into Eurocentric narratives of the ‘rise of the West’. In this highly original and beautifully written volume, Anievas and Nisancioglu set out to overcome both these challenges in one go. Using Leon Trotsky’s idea of ‘uneven and combined development’, they show convincingly that a truly ‘international historical sociology’ can uncover the enormous but neglected part played by non-European societies and cultures in the historical origins of capitalism and hence of the modern world itself. The result is a fascinating tour de force that will surely be debated in the fields of World History, Historical Sociology, Marxism and International Relations for years to come. (Justin Rosenberg, Professor in International Relations at the University of Sussex)

This excellent book, which builds upon extant non-Eurocentric analyses of the Eastern origins of the rise of the West, intervenes in the recent neo-Trotskyist IR literature by showing how uneven and combined development operated prior to European industrialisation and how this international process was in fact formative of, rather than something which flowed on subsequent to, this great economic transformation. (Professor John M. Hobson (University of Sheffield))

In this rigorously argued book, Anievas and Ni?anc?o?lu present a compelling challenge to standard narratives of capitalist modernity. They combine theoretical sophistication and a wide-ranging account of extra-European histories to provide a superb – and provocative – alternative.? (Gurminder K Bhambra, author of Connected Sociologies? (Bloomsbury))

For too long discussions about the emergence of capitalism have been polarised between two misleading and essentialist versions. On the one hand, those which treat the West - and in some versions, just England - as having some special quality or pattern of development which placed it in the lead. On the other, those which simply reverse the equation, claiming that everything which gave the West its advantage was taken from the East. Now, in How the West Came to Rule, we have a superb account which successfully transcends this false dichotomy. Drawing on the best aspects of Historical Sociology and International Relations, and within a rigorous Marxist theoretical framework, Anievas and Ni?anc?o?lu offer a challenge to all existing explanations of the rise of the West to world dominance. (Neil Davidson, author of How Revolutionary Were the Bourgeois Revolutions?)

There is much talk these days of Big History, longer-term narratives, and history on the largest of scales, yet the advocates invariably stop short of talking about capitalism. With their bold and wide-ranging treatment, Alexander Anievas and Kerem Ni?anc?o?lu now place the origins of capitalism at the very centre of the agenda. (Geoff Eley, Karl Pohrt Distinguished University Professor of Contemporary History at the University of Michigan)
